Abstract

In cases of complicated identifications the neutron activation analysis of dental metals may inform more than usual descriptions of the teeth including X-rays. Identifications would become more effective in the field of forensic stomatology by adding “pilot” elements into the alloys of dental metals by the factories. The neutron activation analysis of dental metals from Halsbrücke (GDR) are discussed and compared with spectral analyses.
